Great value for demonstrations and experiments March 27, 2019
Reviewer: Colin Howard from New York, NY United States  
These electroscopes are well-built and large enough to be seen clearly at the back of a classroom. It's very easy to show electrostatic induction and conduction with them using any triboelectricity kit. I used these for two labs in my high school physics classes. The markings aren't totally clear, but the front is large enough to tape a large protractor to so students can measure deflection angles. A student accidentally dropped one (ugh) and the back broke cleanly into two pieces (no shards). Unfortunately, that also bent the electroscope needle somehow, and I couldn't get it to return to a 0-degree resting position. Otherwise, this is a very strong product, and when it's in stock again I'll be ordering another set.

One electroscope was broken when arrived. Apparently shipping didn't go well.

Frustrated with packaging and shipping July 2, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Waco, TX United States  
I have not had a chance to use the items, but the packaging was not labeled at all, so it took forever to determine if all items were present. Everywhere else I order from sends the items labeled with the item information. In addition, the items took longer than I would have expected them to take to arrive.
